the changing sands in foreign policy? >> that's a tough question. i'm not sure if i'm in a position to advise on that part of the world, but in a place like venezuela, when you have a person who dominates the political landscape, it's hard for the u.s. to play with other players. venezuela is a divided country right now, there is an opposition, but they've been p suppressed and oppressed. on the one hand, it reaches out to the opposition, sometimes called the kiss of death. as soon as the opposition reaches out and meets with the u.s., it becomes exactly what the main party wants, which is to project the opposition as somehow collaborating with the u.s., chavez and his supporters. it's a very difficult position. however, it's a principle issue, which is to promote the values the u.s. wants to promote over the individuals, over the parties, that may emerge on the political scene. they are going to have elections in 30 days. chavez won by a significant margin. >> through some arm twisting. >> not free and fair elections, but there is an opposition there the u.s. can certainly foster, if not a

friend and colleague, who was here last year, asked me to write a book about the old foreign policy establishment, and we wrote "the wisemen: six friends of the world they made," getting us both into writing books. walter, who is amazing, when i went to be the head of time and the run away hit, best seller last year, steve jobs. there's a world world war ii bok called "sea of thunder," and the spanish american war called the war lovers. i enjoyed them all, and one of them actually made some money. [laughter] one of the great things about being a journalist is you can write on almost any subject if you're curious and put in the time. when the world war ii generation took on the awesome responsibility, really, in a way of running the world. there's a fantastic story of pride and arrogance and idealism, realism, and cynicism, and intentionally human story for what interested me more than policy or grand strategy was the human dimension, how people operate. the emphasis has been on specialized stuff, race, class, gender studies, social history and so forth, not on what they call dead wh
the status of women and girls right at the center of america's foreign policy. [applause] president obama created the white house council of women and girls in order to help prioritize of gender and equality in the work of every single agency. secretary clinton named the first ambassador at large for global woman's issues and made protecting the rights of women and girls a signature of her work. one of the first things that i was priveledged and excited to do together with barbara boxer was when i was chairman of the foreign relations committee, establish a new sub committee on global women's issues, from the white house to the state department, to the senate, women and girls across the world have more champions than american government than ever before, and we can be proud of that. [applause] but still everybody here knows we have to do more. political stability, excuse me, peace, and prosperity, all require every one wave us to do what we can to advance human rights for everyone regardless of their agenda or ours. that will remain a fundamental prior think of department of state and the
decade. obama, unfortunately, comes in with very little [background sounds] in foreign policy, never paid much attention to it, served in washington for only two years, and i was a very end thursday yays tick supporter of obama and remain, but i think those of us who had looked at him knew national security could be a problem, and when he appointed the secretary of state for domestic reasons and appointed a secretary of defense for domestic reasons and appointed a retired marine general to be the national security adviser, he left in about a year, and put leon panetta, and i know he's one of your neighbors in california, but he was captured by the operational mentality and the cia before he was in the building more than a month. this was an extremely weak national security team. obama also was controlled by the military. that's how you got the surge of forces. i think he realize he was had by the military, and i think that is very important, and it's one of the reasons why i'm a little more optimistic about the seg term is i think this is a wiser man in terms of foreign policy, and if you
editor of foreign-policy magazine, moises naim and his latest book, "the end of power". in it he argues that power no longer lies with the leaders of strong stable governments or the heads of large corporations. the former venezuelan minister says the potential for widespread -- is greater today than ever before. the program is about an hour. >> host: it is my pleasure to interview moises naim for this episode of "after words." you are a noted columnist on international economics and globalization. you are also a scholar at the carnegie endowment for international peace and formerly editor of foreign-policy magazine and former trade minister of venezuela. so, all that said you have also now written a new book called "the end of power" and that is what we are here to talk about today. let's start at the beginning, which i think is how did you come to write this book and how did those various experiences inform what went into this? >> guest: delighted to be here and thank you. you encapsulated many of -- redoing all of those things that you mentioned, i arrived at having an instinct, an i
. that kind of foreign policy impulse towards not using the military as a weapon disappeared as soon as a democrat was not in office, right? so part of this is totally circumstantial. >> distance between the neo cons and the actual base of the republican party, and the gap between the two has been growing and growing and growing, and, yet, the absolute control of the think tanks and the money men and mccain and graham over the foreign policy republican party has remained until remarkably unchallenged, and what you are seeing now is that that's untenable over a turn amount of time. you can't get that far away from your base. >> michael, they're willing to forfeit. i mean, they're willing to forfeit part of that base. look, virginia is a state that the republicans have had historically that obama won in the last two elections. it is up for grabs. they are not trying to make a play for those defense dollars and court favor in the old dominion. >> that's right. >> i think, however, on drones there's a little less here than meets the eye. i think that fundamentally the republican party st

're also getting a surprising inside look right now at president obama's foreign policy team. we're hearing about some bitter rifts he had with the former secretary of state, hillary clinton. also ahead, dennis rodman's new friendship with north korea's leader earning him a slot on a sunday talk show. the white house is not amused. >>> and later, what made the first lady, michelle obama, so nervous. i know what you're thinking... transit fares! as in the 37 billion transit fares we help collect each year. no? oh, right. you're thinking of the 1.6 million daily customer care interactions xerox handles. or the 900 million health insurance claims we process. so, it's no surprise to you that companies depend on today's xerox for services that simplify how work gets done. which is...pretty much what we've always stood for. with xerox, you're ready for real business. but that doesn't mean imuch don't want to make money.stor. i love making money. i try to be smart with my investments. i also try to keep my costs down. what's your plan? ishares. low cost and tax efficient. find out why nine out of
tom lantos, a survivor, was my assistant, was my foreign policy adviser for years, and tom used to say all the time, joe -- he talked that hungarian accent -- joe, we must do another fundraiser for aipac. [laughter] i did more fundraisers for aipac in the 1970s and early 1980s than -- just about as many as anybody. thank god you were not putting on shows like this. we would have never made it. we would have never made it. my lord, it's so great to be with you all and great to see you. mr. president, thank you so much for that kind introduction, and president-elect bob cohen, the entire aipac board of directors, i'm delighted to be with you today, but i'm particularly delighted to be with an old friend -- and he is an old friend. we use that phrase lightly in washington, but it's real, and i think he'd even tell you. ehud barak, it's great to be with you. great to be with you. [applause] there is a stand-up guy. there is a stand-up guy, standing up for his country, putting his life on the line for his country, and continuing to defend the values that we all share. i am a fan of the man.
in the world of u.s. foreign policy we're joined by blake ounce sell, the managing editor of "foreign policy" magazine. we'll start in northeast asia where north korea this week has threatened to undertake a preemptive nuke clear strike on the united states and south korea. what prompted that threat and how seriously does the united states need to take it? >> guest: well, i have a 1-year-old kid who is just about to have his first birthday and i look at this sort of north korea flinging its food basically. you know, when my kid is eating dinner and done with something or doesn't like it, he drops it off the tray and north korea is basically saying, we don't like these new sanctions that the u.n. just passed and we're going to though our food basically. we want you to pay attention to us. we'll ratchet up threats no matter how realistic they are. for instance, today they said or yesterday they said they were going to launch a preemptive strike against the united states and its interests. well, you know, as far as we know north korea doesn't have the capability to do that. they can't put minia
to situations of extreme humanitarian distress. our foreign policy is inseparable from supporting international law. we must assist the genuine, moderate and democratic forces in syria who are in dire need of help and who feel abandoned by the international community. the longer this conflict goes on, the more human suffering, persecution of minorities, radicalization and sectarian conflict there will be. despite these three compelling arguments, there will still be those who say britain should have nothing to do with syria. but we cannot look the other way while human rights are flouted, and it would be height of irresponsibility to ignore potential threat to our own security. so i want to explain to the house today the next step in increasing our support to the syrian people, and i emphasize there may well have to be further steps. we have contributed nearly 140 million pounds in humanitarian aid so far. this is funding foot, clean drinking water, medical stabs, blankets and shelter for many tens of thousands of people. we're supporting the syrian national coalition's own efforts to deliver a
going on a tangent regarding national security and foreign policy and the republican party definitely isn't known for. >> let's play what rand paul -- just gave an interview this morning to glenn beck on his radio show. here's a little bit of what rand paul said regarding his critics. let's play it. >> government were comprised of angels we wouldn't need rules and so i try to make it less about president obama and more about what if some day we elect someone who wouldn't -- who would abuse this power? >> senator, there's been some criticism of your filibuster last night including from apparently lindsey graham saying that the idea is that we're going to use a drone to attack a citizen in a cafe in america is ridiculous. >> well, i agree it's ridiculous idea but why wouldn't the president then say he won't? >> so mark, in that interview, rand paul also indicated and i guess look glenn beck and his co-host that he's willing to confirm the nomination with information and i want to point out what you wrote about this. mark, one more thing of paul's filibuster last night, we're pretty sure
. to enlighten us and talk about more foreign policy with john kerry and iran, heather is the executive director of the national security network. thanks for being on the show. >> thanks for having me. michael: what are the ramifications immediately of the death of hugo chavez? is it something that americans are going to realize or feel in any way i'm not going to say on a daily basis but what's going to be the immediate impact, if any. >> your world tomorrow is going to look like today. he has been deathly ill for sometime. medura has been running the government. there will be an election. the interesting question that it's actually too early to know is whether there will be turbulence in the international oil markets because of this. that's really the one very short-term consequence that we could expect to see. remember, venezuela is a top global oil producer member of the opec. medium term frankly is where it starts to get interesting is an election held, can the vice president win what does the opposition do? chavez was an incredibly magnetic figure and became president four times on the bas
on this pairing, i spoke with blake, the managing editor of foreign policy magee. blake, could this story be more surreal? >> it stiemsma like something straight out of the onion or some other fictional magazine. of all the people in the world, dennis rodman becomes the first hot profile american to meet the north korean leader. >> is it more sporting or a p.r. stunt? >> i think the nancy view -- the north koreans view it as a propaganda stunt. they are playing it up that this great nba star is giving fealty to the great north korean leader. from my perspective, anything we can learn about this guy is a good thing, even if it gets a little propaganda. >> do you think dennis rodman is going to be de-briefed by state department officials? >> they made very clear that they aren't going to seek out to de-brief him, but i am sure other agencies would want to do that. >> kim jong-il predicted this could be an ice breaker between north korea and america? >> well, there are a lot of things that have to happen before you break the ice between the two countries. the main thing is north korea has to tone do
macarthur, the general, and what did it say about u.s. foreign policy? the decisions that were made, how did you read that? >> i mean there is obviously making a movie about those types of decisions with what is going on in the world today and some of the conflicts we have been embroiled on and the way that we are accepting this conflict. i saw that there was a parallel there. i really felt like at least the way our film handles what happened in 1945, that it shows macarthur was looking down the field along ways. he really i think made very wise and patient decisions even though he was getting an enormous amount of pressure from washington to make a decision and i think he felt that politically. he also had political aspirations and politically, he felt for him to go over there and just round of all these war criminals and execute them and potentially hirohito be one of them would probably be something that was politically prudent. because of the environment that existed at the end of world war ii. and how people felt about japan. to make the decisions that he id based on feller's recommenda
on the state of the problem. delegates will be briefed on foreign policy. relations with neighboring countries are under strain. countries are alarmed by china's moves to assert their presence in the region. regarding the dispute with japan over the senkaku islands, the spokesperson for the national people's congress said it would be impolite not to reciprocate the other's action. china looks for nationalization of the islands by japan's government as provocation and justified to dispatch of chinese patrol boats and aircraft to the area as countermeasures. when the outgoing leadership took power corruption and economic inequality were identified as key challenges. ten years later those issues have yet to be resolved. and democratic reforms seem to have made no progress at all. the world waits to see what congress has to say on the key issues facing china's future. nhk world, beijing. >> we'll be bringing you more stories and insight from china's national people's congress all this week. on tuesday our james tengan will report from beijing on premier wen jiabao's final policy speech. >>> cradle
by the other, right? how did ambassador rod minnesota's complete lack of foreign policy knowledge not come out in the confirmation hearing? i don't know. let's get a simple moment, maybe something about the family. >> matt and craig live close to an open space area. we throw the balls to the dogs. we play sports with the kids. they lick kick balls, hitting baseballs. we do what grandparents are expected to do with grand kids. >> jon: do you see why you snroft i'm not suggest you don't have a wonderful and warm relationship with your family and grandchildren in these open space areas -- [laughter] -- but you need to understand that we humans -- [laughter] -- we call them parks. [ laughter ] you can't describe them as "open space areas" and expect to win elections because humans tend to vote for other humans. but in the end, sunday morning's epic battle to misconstrue basic human relationships to had to go to dennis rodman who had one form for the one family dictatorship. >> one thing i noticed about him he was very humble as a kid he's very humble. [laughter] >> jon: yes, the 28-year-old who co
vacuum in president obama's otherwise reasonably successful foreign policy. whoever is to blame, the fact remains that the only doable path to peace and stability is a strong relationship between the united states and china. the two countries are are not always going to agree, but they need to have much better and deeper ties. so, when he gets back from his trip, secretary kerry should start planning his next one to asia. for more on this, go to cnn.com/fareed for a link to my washington post column. >>> but up next, iran. let's get started. >>> expectations were not high for this week's nuclear talks with iran, but then the chief iranian negotiator said the meeting had been a turning point. and secretary of state kerry called the talks useful. by the standards of these meetings, this is giddy optimism. so, what happened? and what can we expect in the next round of talks? joining me now in a rare and exclusive interview is iran's ambassador to the united nations mohammad khazaee. welcome. >> great pleasure to be with you. >> tell me what specifically iran sees as a turning point in these
of foreign policy magazine and former minister in venezuela. so, all that said, you have also now written a new book called "the end of power" and that's what we are here to talk about today. let's start at the beginning. which i think is how did you come to write this book and how did all of those various experiences and for what went into this? >> guest: delighted to be here. thank you. in that introduction you encapsulated many of the -- by giving a lot of those things that you mentioned, i arrived at having that intuition about what was going on with power. we all know that power is shifting from the west to the east, north to south from a very big companies through start-ups and from people in the presidential palace is to people in the streets. we know that is happening in the world. that is nothing new. but i detected the that there was something more profound happening to power, that power was experiencing innovation. power was buying much less. people with power could do less with it. that doesn't mean they are not very powerful, the pope and the head of the pentagon and the pres
, cooperation, and mutual benefit and pursue peaceful development and adhere to our independent foreign policy of peace and promote durable peace and common prosperity in the world. fellow deputies, we have achieved remarkable progress on the part of socialism with chinese characteristics in the past. now we envision an even brighter future for our great country. the leadership of the party's central committee, let us unite as one and work hard to finish building a moderately prosperous society in all the facts and achieved a great rejuvenation of the chinese nation.

secretary clinton, take instructions on foreign policy from people in the white house who, frankly, don't have as much experience as you. this was a problem with your predecessor. >> i think -- there's lots of experience in the white house. please don't diminish that, number one. number two, i'm delight to work for this president, with the president and his advisors. it's a great team. the president has a terrific vision. that's what i came over here to try to reinforce is to really cement a community of action around common values, common economic interests, common security interests, and in europe, we did that, and in rome we made it clear how we would join together with respect to syria. in egypt we worked hard to try to help a new democracy in the tloez of post rel use, find its economic footing. here in the middle east i have found an extraordinarily strong set of relationships and a renewed interest in peace in the middle east and in other security issues. this has been, i think, working with the president is an honor. i'm privileged that he asked me to do this job. there was noth
think a shot across the bow in terms of president and how he conducts the foreign policy. i think that's the troubling part about it. i think senator mccain hasn't come to terms with the fact he's not the president and the president as commander and chief has the role and responsibility and power to decide what the foreign policy is for the country. and senator mccain clearly has a different vision of this so this is the game they're playing. this is trying to box, you know, the president in. i just don't think it's a smart strategy and something to win over a lot of support amongst the american people. >> thank you. great pleasure having you both on. >>> we have more breaking news out of washington where a massive winter storm could add to the turmoil. several high profile house votes and hearings could be affected. the approaching storm could delay a house vote on a republican plan to avert a government shutdown but a bipartisan deal on gun control legislation announced just yesterday is still so far on track to go before the senate judiciary committee. luke russert, i'm talking abou
to foreign policy, i think the yahoo wing of the party, the people who cheer rd when they talked about self-deportation. >> can we do something nonideological. you're left, he's right. when a party gets beaten in an election they thought it was going to win because they had a good shot last november. we all agree on that. nobody knew except nate silver and a few others. does it go off to his natural poll like left or right? or does it naturally go wait we lost a close one. what do people do in their parties? go to the wings or to the center? >> after reagan lost in '76 to ford and ford lost to carter, then the party went back to reagan and he won. so i think it can go both ways. i think it really depends again on the people who select the nominees which are the grassroots of the party. and i think right now you've seen them move to the right. >> i don't know who's running to his right to convene him. >> to whose right? >> jeb bush. name one serious candidate to run to his right. >> that's the point. who's the serious canned? >> santorum is not getting elected to anything ever again as long
going to end up a neocon or a realist on foreign policy? a guy like jim baker. which would be your bet? >> my bet is he would go with the -- not the cheney crowd, the other crowd. i think he would be a realist. >> so we won't have another war every time a bush gets elected? >> i don't think we'd invade iran right away. we're two for two so far. i think he looked very romneyesque in his explanation. >> both bushes had had two a piece. >> i think he looked romneyesque in his explanation of policy. but look at this. if the primary in florida was next year, could he beat marco rubio? i think given this -- >> that's not how we run for president? >> you got to get the primary. but i don't think he could beat rubio in his own state. >> what does that prove? >> it proves i don't think he has the claim. i know people like you who want an adult leader for your party love him. i don't see how he plays with the base of the republican party. >> go with that point. he seems too moderate for your far out wing. >> i don't think he would run against marco rubio. they're friends. i don't think that's go
and for american foreign policy. >> dede myers is the first woman to be white house press secretary and joins me now here. >> happy international women's day. >> i was at a conference last night moderating a panel on women violence focussing on women in new delhi, and with really smart people from new delhi and uganda, a woman lawyer from there, and it was just heart breaking to hear how much women are still victimized. we know it. we know it in conflict zones. it's also done in the shadows, in the dark. >> right. >> not only street violence, but violence within the families. >> right. domestic violence as we know is a problem all over the world, including here, which is why it was great through this week, the congress finally passed the violence against women act, but around the world violence is certainly one of many obstacles to women, but what's interesting is when you increase women's -- when you empower women, not only does that make them more likely to stand up for themselves, but when they have more economic value and people, particularly men, recognize that, domestic violence decreases.
their request because they were trying to pursue a foreign policy that was quite frankly ill conceived. they objected, the military, the american military and contractors securing the conflict, they wanted to basically lead from behind and outsource security to a nonexistent government in benghazi, so the president is the primary culpable party here. his leading from behind strategy of trying to basically have a very low american footprint led to this debacle called benghazi, we also know that secretary clinton did not have a clear idea of the threats in benghazi, because she never received any information coming from statements and other people on the ground in benghazi and tripoli about the threats they faced. she was deaf and blind and before the attack is a clear example of a failed foreign policy, a detached president and a deaf and blind secretary of state. >> sean: i mean, what i'm having a hard time wrapping my hands around here is this is a hot bed of terrorist and when an ambassador is requesting additional security you would think this would be taken seriously and this is th
the president, "this is to learn." i think benghazi is extent a in a failed foreign policy. leading from behind is not working, and we're trying to find out what happened on that night so we won't have any benghazis and i'm not going to vote for brennan until the c.i.a., who said they did change want talking points, lets us know who did it. >> schieffer: you're not going to vote for him-- >> i will stop. i think john and i are hell bent on making sure the american people understand this debacle called benghazi. the f.b.i. and cia never talked for weeks. we're going back to the pre--9/11 model. we don't know what the interview of the survivors tell us. there was never a video that spawned a riot. that whole story has been debunked and we're going to get to the bottom of it. >> schieffer: senator. i've had written questions for mr. brennan for three weeks and i've not received a single answer. i think we deserve a answers to those questions. >> schieffer: you are going to join senator graham. >> i hate to then the. the story tomorrow will be, "mccain and graham threaten--" why not get answers to
on foreign policy. what has been called afterwards the cynical. where real announced a couple of government policies on the sense , a common european headquarters, for example, to lounge our operations when we have military operations still outside the european union, it is in my opinion one of the prairies in the coming year. also, for reasons of public finance in his what europeans, 27 states. forty and 45 percent of the american military, that's a lot of money. you can say 40-45 percent of the american expenditure, but that is a lot of money. not only we can do tim percent of the operations of the american army. if i do my mathematics could the emmy's where 45 percent less protected than the american -- as normal because you 27 times the same thing. the transport, intelligence. you name it. twenty-seven times the name -- 27 times the time. so defense is definitely the key . it can help to reduce the system and at the same time to create. how to have a common foreign policy. you need diplomacy and commonality. they are obliged. the number of european councils. i raised the question. in ba

to situations of extreme humanitarian distress. our foreign policy is inseparable from holding human rights, protecting lives and supporting international law. we must assist genuine moderate and democratic caucuses in syria who are in dire need of help and to feel abandoned by the international community. the longer this conflict goes on, the more human suffering, persecution of minorities, radicalization and sectarian conflict there will be. despite these three compelling arguments there will still be those who say britain should have nothing to do with syria but we cannot look the other way while international law and human rights are flouted. we cannot step back from a crisis that could be -- destabilize the heart of the middle east and that would be the height of irresponsibility to ignore potential threat to our own security. so i want to explain to the house today the next step in increasing our support of the syrian people and i emphasize they may well have to be further steps. we have contributed 1 forty million pounds in humanitarian aid so far. this is from food, clean drinking w

his father, scrambles republican politics. at least foreign policy questions from the libertarian side, it scrambles everything. and you've also got, i think, a larger issue in the senate. you have younger republican senators who are not afraid to go after the establishment, the old bulls. there's pictures in "the new york times" you pointed out on the elevator, those elevators are pretty big. in this case, i don't think it was quite big enough because senator mccain, when he's angry, and i think it's fair to say he was angry yesterday, he doesn't hide it very well. and rand paul is fearless. like mike lee of utah, like some of these other younger republican senators, ted cruz now, they're not afraid of older senators. they're willing to kind of break some china and mccain and lindsey graham are coming right back at them. as you said, in support of a democratic president. >> john, what did you see yesterday? >> well, i think it's interesting.

. north korea has become a liability for chinese foreign security policy in the region. >> you mentioned before the isolation of north korea. does this make the nation feel cornered and under pressure to take some sort of action? >> strange as it may sound, i think it is more a sign of weakness than strength, and it illustrates how isolated the leadership is and how much it has to rest on the power of the military class in north korea. >> thank you very much for that analysis. >> frantic diplomatic efforts are under way to secure the efforts of 21 united nations peacekeepers taken hostage by a syrian rebel group. they are being held in golan heights where there were put on a mission to monitor the syrian border area. >> they have been ordered to treat them as enemy prisoners. >> the rebels purportedly posted this video on the internet at the kidnapping the united nations troops. the rebel group calls itself the martyrs of the armored brigade, and they accuse the peacekeepers of working with the syrian government. they say that is the only reason the government has been able to station tr
advantage of the benghazi/libya situation and the foreign policy debate. he came off as detached from reality and didn't show the people an urgency that certainly he could have shown with the economy and the general tenure of the country being so disorganized. did he take personal responsibility in the interview with you for the loss? >> oh, absolutely. because i asked him about some things the campaign did wrong. and while he acknowledges that, he says, look, every strategic decision in this campaign i made, i take full responsibility for it it but the one place i disagree with you, bill, is, you know, it's not like the other side wasn't trying. one of the things we talk about in the interview is the fact that from april until august, after he had had this tough primary campaign, he was out oof money. he had not set up an organization for national campaign. he had set it up in these series of primaries that the president was able to just bastion to hit him on beanie capitol and tax returns. until he was able to get money in the organization those attacks went unanswered. frankly they
